Tap: On tap as "Derelicte: Pineapple IPA" before bottling. Golden-yellow body, like a grilled pineapple with a quickly fleeting off-white foam. Small bits of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is a nice mash-up of leafy hops, pine, bitter pineapple, & moderate citrus rind. Perhaps just a light touch of crackery malt. Flavor is the same way; nice zesty hops left & right. Pine, moderate resin, citrus rind, grapefruit, pineapple, & a bit of orange zest. Sweetness of the pineapple cuts the bitterness of the hops just a bit for a relatively smooth finish. Really enjoyed this the first time I had it. Out of the bottle, the pineapple presence was much lighter, & it came off just like any other IPA. Rating based off of the first time I had it.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, deep caramel with a thin, white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has juicy notes of tropical fruits, a bit of resin, and pine. Taste is balanced. Resin, pineapple, pine, citrus, bread/caramel, and a drawn out, resin/pineapple aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Mild resiny texture with with a bit of a dry finish. Overall a taste IPA with a splash of pineapple that just adds to the flavour.

Bill Becker (725) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 21, 2014
This time, a bottle from my Buddy...Trent! It’s a hazy honey coloured brew that sits under a +1 finger of billowy foam. In the smell, I get biscuit malt mixed with a citrusy grassy hop aroma. The taste brings me biscuit malt and a citrus turning to, in the finish, a sort of quinine bitterness. Very sharp bitterness. I can’t say I get any pineapple. Medium body and carbonation. This is an unusual IPA and one that I like.

Draft. Good pineapple flavor in this one, expecting a bit more of the hops it comes off as more of a fruit beer than an ipa.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. Deep golden/orange body with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, citrus, toasted grain, tropical fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, slick, pineapple juice texture, soft carbonation. Drinkable for a novelty beer. Pineapple sweetness and bitter hops work find together, the pineapple accentuating the citrus character of the hops.

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Piney and slight citrus hops with some slight bubblegum flavor and peppery finish. Not really tasting much pineapple, but not a bad beer.

Sammy (10655) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
Recent bottle from Champane Cellars. More ipa than grapefruit, which is tasted only in the finish. Cloudy orange with lots of lace and head. Drinkable and bitter, not the best base IPA.

Pours a clear copper color. Aroma and taste are pineapple and some malts. Lightly sweet with a bitter finish.

flatmatt (1395) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2014
12 oz bottle as just "Pineapple IPA." Pours a hazy orange amber with an off-white head. Citrus, tropical fruit, and a bit of pine in the aroma. Flavor is similar, citrus and tropical fruit, but ties in more pine resin. It’s a fairly well-done beer, really.

Nephilium (1627) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
The aroma is an intriguing blend of piney hops and pineapple. The beer pours a clear amber with just a faint dusting of head. Initial presentation is pineapple, which gets quickly overridden by the bitter hops, and comes back for a bit in the finish. A nice solid IPA that has some interesting notes added from the pineapple.
